The Progressive or Liberal is a mixed bag of consensus thinking based on populist theory. They think in ways unimaginable years ago and speak in words often designed to assign negative attributes to those who don’t think as they do. Decades ago most of their ideas were viewed as outrageous or at least foolish but now that the world has focused on going along with what the loudest voices in the room want, their ideas go down well, especially among the fashionable and well moneyed. What’s up is down and what’s down is up, it’s a Topsy-turvy world.
Liberals like words such as advocacy, deniers, diversity, homophobic, racist, bigot, activist, inclusion or gender as part of their everyday lexicon. So when something comes along to attract their eye which gives them an opportunity for more self inflated, I’m of superior mind & behavior, they jump at the opportunity. Climate change, “global warming”, is the perfect example of this nonsense.
The Planet Is Heating Up—and Fast . . .
The current cycle of global warming is changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely upon. What will we do to slow this warming? How will we cope with the changes we’ve already set into motion?
Antarctica is a very cold place. But global warming is affecting it as predicted: Antarctica is losing ice overall, according to the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. However, sea ice is a different matter than land-based or glacial ice. Antarctic sea ice is increasing, and moreover, the reason for this may be climate change!

Climate change is the single biggest environmental and humanitarian crisis of our time.
“The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2.” – Wall Street Journal January 27, 2012
John McLaughlin News Commentator from PBS:
“The most original thinker is Michael Fumento, an investigative writer and attorney living in Colombia. Fumento has painstakingly documented the unfulfilled and erroneous predictions of climate-change computer models. Now a growing list of scientists reject the so-called consensus that man-made climate change is real. Fumento’s patient debunking of the prevailing orthodoxy makes him the most original thinker of 2013.”
The article he referred to was this one:
Global-warming ‘proof’ is evaporating
Of course the defenders of the ‘Global Warming’ myth are taking it on the chin with the recent cold weather, doing their best to explain it’s just an anomaly and the rest of the world is still heating up. Of course anytime a significant hurricane makes landfall, tornado or we have a hot spell in the summer, these same promoters are telling us it’s due to global warming.
So what are the facts? It seems the people promoting climate change phenomena are often the ones that fly to conferences in private jets, have the largest homes and generally seem to have ‘carbon footprints’ that dwarf an average citizen by orders of magnitude.
As distinguished mathematics professor Anastasios Tsonis, University of Wisconsin states; “We are already in a cooling trend, which I think will continue for the next 15 years at least. There is no doubt the warming of the 1980s and 1990s has stopped.“
“The IPCC claims its models show a pause of 15 years can be expected. But that means that after only a very few years more, they will have to admit they are wrong.”
News stories about rising oceans flooded coastal areas and raising grapes in areas where it previously was too cold, helps the average reader or viewer buy into the nonsense. Anyone that disagrees with these ‘sky is falling’ alarmists become a target for the usual liberal tirade of name calling such as, “flat-earthers”, “tin-foil hat wearing”, etc. What doesn’t come through is the truth. They believe in and follow information which arrives at unsupportable conclusions. There simply aren’t any computer models which will accurately predict climate or weather patterns significantly into the future. They’ve become zealots using self descriptions such as, “green”, “environmentally conscious”, “friends of the planet”, etc. It’s bad science often funded through extensive government grants because the politicians want to initiate more regulations with more bureaucrats and added taxes like “carbon emissions”.
Math professor and meteorologist, Anastasios Tsonis debunked the idea that scientists such as himself and hundreds of others, receive funds like their counterparts. Indeed, why would the petroleum industry, long accused of funding skeptic research, need to spend money for people who don’t oppose the petroleum or coal industry?
The data is in and so are the trend analysis. For those who are claiming to want to be open-minded, they need to understand what they’re being told to believe in is nothing more than a grand hoax. As one scientist puts it; there are a lot of people believing and sincere in this belief just as were the teetotalers of the early 20th century. Their pressure to make everyone follow their ideals led to the increase in public skepticism of the law and a rise in organized crime. The 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition but the negative effects have rippled for decades afterward.
The bottom line about climate change is that the earth’s climate has changed significantly over millennium, creating ice ages followed by significant warmer temperatures long before human involvement. Evidence has been uncovered by climate historians about a massive ice melt in the decades of the 1920s and 30s, after which were periods of intense re-freezes. But, the IPCC seems content to ignore such evidence. Furthermore, explorers during the time of Leif Ericson, the son of Eric the Red, found North America warmer than it is today. During Leif’s return voyage, his ships were blown off their course, and after many days of sailing southward, he landed on a far more beautiful land than either Iceland or Greenland. Because grapes were found there, he called it Vinland. It has since been identified as the eastern coast of North America. This part of present day Canada was much warmer than it is found today.
